Why you should never ever quit

Nathan throws

Don’t Quit

Don’t quit when the tide is lowest
For it’s just about to turn;
Don’t quit over doubts and questions,
For there’s something you may learn.

Don’t quit when the night is darkest
For it’s just a while ’til dawn;
Don’t quit when you’ve run the farthest,
For the race is almost won.

Don’t quit when the hill is steepest,
For your goal is almost nigh;
Don’t quit, for you’re not a failure
Until you fail to try.

Nathan wins

My son Nathan never quits; he is a gold medal judo winner and I am soooo proud of him as a mom :)

Are you feeling my pain?

WPC: Birds of a Feather

“Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.”
Victor Hugo

Our neighbourhood abounds with birds of every description but the most common are sparrows and blackbirds. Occasionally we get wood doves and larger pigeons but these tend to be a little more shy i.e. it doesn’t matter how plentiful the goodies are, we’ll just watch the other birds as they snack but from our perch on high.
